Teaching since:

I was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. I graduated with a degree in Japanese and English literature. After I graduated college, I went to take TESOL(Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) certificate. Since then, I have spent several years teaching English, Korean and Japanese and being a supervisor to several other teachers. I have an outgoing type of personality, and enjoy teaching others to improve their knowledge of either Japanese, Korean or the English language. I also enjoy doing yoga, cooking, traveling, staying active, hiking, and also enjoy trying new things.

I like to help people learn languages faster in a fun way. So I use many different materials to boost learning faster. With my my extensive knowledge of the Korean and Japanese language, and Korean and Japanese culture I will be able to teach you anything and everything about Korea and Japan. I look forward to teaching you and to help you learn and improve on your goals.
Thank you!!

Fantastic instructor! Had some technical problems going into the lesson which kinda deterred. But Ms. Young-Ju made the lesson very interesting. I am a complete beginner but she was always patient with me and we had many good laughs. Looking forward to plenty more!

My lessons with Ms. Young-Ju are/were amazing! She actually takes the time to teach and make sure you understand what the lesson is about and what is going on. There is also a good flow of communication, no stiffness or awkwardness. And most importantly, the lesson actually feels like a lesson and not as though I'm simply being read a dictionary or reading a book.

A great instructor and I highly recommend her.
